New in 2018, we’ve created a SERIES of our very popular Micro-Triathlon events at Williams Wharf in Mathews County, Virginia. Building on the success of our single event, this series will include five separate triathlons – one per month, starting in June and wrapping up in October. Places to stay in Mathews.
(Sign up for 1 or more series events using this link. Discounts apply for multiple events.)
Registration: is available online and onsite. The online process accommodates credit card, cash, and check forms of payment – with no transaction fees. You can register for the events separately ($20), or take advantage of discounts if you sign up for multiple events at the same time.
Timing: we electronically time each event to include splits for each leg and for the transitions (2017 example). Live results for each event will be displayed on a monitor near the transition area, and can be viewed on a mobile device.
Awards: Series awards will be presented after the final event in October. Top prize will be awarded to the fastest overall finisher – times combined for all five events. Depending on the number of series participants, we may be able to add in recognition prizes for the fastest combined swim, bike, run, and transition times (overall top finisher will not be eligible for these skill-specific awards).
If you miss one event or more, you can still be considered for a series-based prize. We will use the final finisher’s time for the event(s) you missed as your time for that event.
Swag. Anyone who completes all five series events – regardless of time – will receive a commemorative MMTS hoodie sweatshirt. A sweatshirt may not have appeal in June, July, and August – but by the time Sep-Oct arrive, you will look forward to it! Sweatshirts will also be available for purchase upon request.
Events 1, 2, 4, and 5 – follow the traditional triathlon sequence of Swim, Bike, Run. Distances: 1/4 mile swim, 8 mile bike, 2 mile run.
Event 3 – we changed the triathlon leg sequence and the distances for each leg. Start with a 2 mile run, then 3/4 mile swim, and finish with a short 5 mile bike. Triathlons tend to favor the strongest cyclists – let’s even the playing field a little!
